I offer a comprehensive wellness package that includes a 3-hour initial Ayurvedic Health Consultation, a highly personalized Transformational Wellness Plan, and follow-up appointments designed to get you to your health goals in the shortest possible time.
If you are looking for relief from painful physical symptoms, and you suspect your digestion and gut health might hold the solution, then an Ayurvedic Health Consultation with me can help you discover the root causes.
Ayurveda views health through the lens of 5,000 years of observed and lived wisdom that has been codified as the “science of healthy living.”
Ayurveda’s view is that disease starts in the gut first. It starts with imbalances in biocharacteristics such as an excess or deficiency of heat, cold, dryness, and/or heaviness. Such imbalances travel from the gut into the blood, where they circulate and eventually settle and individualize in the bodily tissues (usually where you have a weakness).
When we support the gut, we are actually facilitating the optimal transformation of fuel (food) to be used by the body for healing and renewal. Any detox and cleansing support is gentle, supportive, and mindfully protective of the bodily channels. This is to avoid damaging the delicate workings of the body. It’s as simple as that really.
If you haven’t consulted Ayurveda on your wellness journey yet, I encourage you to do so now, because there’s nothing that compares to Ayurveda’s individualized approach.
Ayurveda’s view is that every person is a unique being, with a unique constitutional body type and imbalances. You will be able to gain more awareness of how your body functions, connect to new understandings, and empower yourself in the process.
I have designed a Transformational Wellness Package with the maximum value and individual attention I can possibly offer, to ensure that you get everything you need to achieve your health goals. I wholeheartedly invite you to let me help you.
This package includes: (all delivered virtually)
Before we begin, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive intake of your overall health symptoms and submit this information, including photos of your tongue, face, hands, fingers, and body profile. Your preparation will take about 1-2 hours, and it is to ensure maximal and holistic clarity on your health condition.
My focus in our initial 3-hour consultation will be to understand your life history, to ask questions based on what you submitted, and to listen very carefully, so that we can uncover the heart of the problem, whether it be mind, body, or spirit, or all of it.
I am a sensitive empath, and I believe in empowering you with the utmost compassion. Your experience, your preferences, and what feels right to you, is what will guide us toward a tangible plan, a.k.a. your pot of gold.
We will design your plan with your needs and current lifestyle in mind, so that it can serve as a loving roadmap to reach your health goals.
1. YOUR HEALTH GOALS
Your specific health goals are listed right at the top, so you know exactly where you’re headed.
2. YOUR AYURVEDIC CONSTITUTION (DOSHA)
Get clarity on your Ayurvedic constitution (dosha), and an understanding for the specific lifestyle habits that are most likely to harm you, as well as what has traditionally felt balancing for people like you.
It is important to realize that we often make choices against our own best interests without realizing it. Gaining insight into how your choices may be either harmful or supportive can be tremendously empowering.
3. YOUR IMBALANCES
An Ayurvedic approach to healing uses biocharacteristics (also known as qualities), such as Hot, Heavy, or Dry, to determine conditions of imbalance that are dominant in your body. It is these imbalances that create the conditions for dis-ease in the body that manifest as uncomfortable symptoms.
Expect to gain clarity on your specific signs of imbalance, and what triggers the imbalances, as well as the food choices and lifestyle habits that are contributing to these imbalances.
4. PRINCIPLES OF YOUR BALANCING DIET
Here is where you’ll see a summary of which types of foods and cooking techniques have traditionally been the most supportive for people with your imbalances, as well as which ones to minimize.
5. A LIST OF YOUR BEST FOODS
Here is where you get a list of your best foods, organized by category, to serve as your guide for recipe and meal planning.
We will also incorporate your favorite foods (even if they are not on the list), and provide instructions on how to mitigate any potentially negative effects from these foods.
I will suggest at least 20 recipes that are likely to be the most nourishing for you, and set you up with 2 weeks of Meal Plan on a digital (printable) calendar.
Recipes will based on the ideal foods that we’ve identified to bring your body back into balance, as well as the specific diet preferences you share with me. They will also be flexible and customizable, so that one recipe becomes many.

7. HERBAL TEAS & SPICES
Herbal teas and spices contain tremendously valuable health benefits for mind, body, and spirit. I will help you to incorporate the right herbs and spices into your diet to help you feel more balanced.
8. AYURVEDIC HERBS & SUPPLEMENTS
Ayurvedic herbal supplements are simply herbs that come from nature. They have not been processed in labs, and Ayurvedic formulas are synergetic, gentle, and supportive of the body’s natural function. Supplements are not usually my first choice, but if I think it is appropriate, I will recommend these to you.
9. KEY HEALTH ACTION LIFESTYLE STEPS
You will receive at least six targeted health action steps related to self-care and daily routines. These are designed to fit into your lifestyle, and embrace the things you already love, so you only need to make a few tweaks to fit these in.
* You may also receive additional resources related to your specific health concerns, clearing mental and emotional blocks, etc.
